Lego Robot Rats

(Via Edhat.com)

In 6 short weeks students have gone from "what's a microcontroller?" to competing in a challenge where autonomous (no remote control) robots navigate a complex playing field two at a time in search of many foam blocks of "cheese."

The class is an introduction to autonomous robotics, systems design, sensing, feedback and much more. The competition is a fun, festive day so please feel free to come watch. The skills students learn here directly apply to many systems and automation designs of today.
